You can inspect the agreements that Apple wishes you to accept as part of the enrollment into iTunes U as an instructor from the web page: https://itunesu.itunes.apple.com/coursemanager/ You will need to sign in with an Apple ID or make a new Apple ID to access this page. It asks you to define your affiliation with some sort of school - so that might be ...

I could resolve the issue by removing the Podcasts and iTunes U apps from the iPad. Afterwards the shared items are visible in the Videos app.

I personally haven't seen an easy setting which will let you choose a destination while the course is being downloaded. You still have two options: In iTunes go to Preferences and then select Advanced tab on top. There is an option to change the iTunes Media folder location. You can connect a USB drive and temporarily select that drive for downloads. I ...

You can't do this — courses with additional documentation such as PDFs can't be constructed in this way for personal use only. Additional course materials need to be added to a course using iTunes U Course Manager. You need the iTunes U Course Manager to create such courses — setting the media type in iTunes doesn't work for this. If you really want to ...

If you want to stay up with the entire course, press the large subscribe button and you will then get a warning that explains a bit more about how the process works. At that point, you can double check what content you want to actually download (just like a podcast works) and you will of course have to enter an AppleID with payment set up if the specific ...

Go into the settings dialog for one of your courses. You will see a drop-down menu next to "Settings for:" Click on that, and at the top of that menu you will see "iTunes U Default" You can change settings there.

On an iPod Classic there is no way to delete them from the device. It needs to be connected to iTunes to do it the official way. The problem will be that it has been so long since your last sync that it may make too many changes to your iPod. You could connect it to iTunes and cancel the sync, then go to the iPod's main page and select to sync manually. At ...

I had the same problem and setting iTunes to run in 32-bit mode fixed it for me. There might be an issue with the video encoding on some of the older WWDC videos like the "Working with Core Data" video that can be found at the Apple developer video site under iOS. To set iTunes to run in 32-bit mode: Quit iTunes. Open your applications folder and ...

I understand your frustration, thankfully, it can be done. Many video apps, like the YouTube app or the iTunes U App allow you to play the content in the background like music, it just takes a certain trick. The way you do it is two ways, depending on if you want to sleep your iPhone or use other apps while you listen: Exit the App and then double click ...

Delete the videos. Then right-click on the course title and select Show all available items. This will restore the complete list of available episodes. You can also do this by option-clicking on the disclosure arrow of the course. The arrow needs to be closed before option-clicking in order for this to work.

Sorting by "Release Date" is currently the only option for sorting iTunes U in iTunes. The sorting of content is meant to be left up to the creator of the iTunes U collection/course. The collections are automatically sorted alphabetically by collection name. If you click on the disclosure triangle for each collection, the lectures can then be sorted by ...

Not today. This is similar to how iBooks also cannot (currently) be viewed on a Mac. (and I don't have any clue if this will ever happen, it just seems like something that could happen)

If you download classes from iTunes U, there are stored on your computer hard drive. Then You can handle those files to be sync with the device you think about, with the tool you uselaly use... There no big difference.

As I search some I find that it happen because of antivirus: What seemed to work for me was disabling anti-virus software during the load process. I killed my antivirus and then hit refresh on all of the podcasts that failed with err = -3259 and they all finished successfully. Long term I think we need to get apple to resolve this issue, ...

I've had a similar problem when downloading videos from iTunes U. While an update might be required to properly download videos, what I've done was to "Watch" the download progress window (I.E. I kept the downloads window from iTunes open while everything was downloading.) And for some reason, after the download, the file gets processed and is available for ...
